Event description

Description

Gawthorpe Hall, is not only one of the finest 17th century houses in the North of England but is also the home of the Rachel Kay Shuttleworth textile collection.

The house was built, as a pele tower, in the 14th century and aggrandised from 1600, allegedly by Robert Smythson, builder of Hardwick Hall, for the Shuttleworth family. It was later in the 19th century further embellished by Sir Charles Barry, builder of the Houses of Parliament in 1850’s. We shall have a guided tour of the house, before the public entrance to the house, followed by a chance to revisit the house after a light lunch available in the adjacent restaurant.

Price £30 to include transport, guided tour of the house and collections, special opening of the textile collection.

Coach pick-up points = Aire Street, Leeds=08.15, Golden Acre Park=08.45, Ilkley=09.15 Please advise of your choice.

Guided tour of house 10.30am. Limited to 20 participants
